    Nice set lunch

    Wanted to go to Original Sin for a weekday lunch but they were closed for Mondays:(. Choose Micheangelo's over Au Petite Bistro in the end. Went for the Amex 1-for-1 set lunch, which gives you a soup of the day (fish chowder) or a salad (mushrooms with greens), a main (penne with beef and mushrooms in saffron cream sauce or a grilled chicken), a dessert (tiramisu) and coffee/tea.

    Salad was unexpectedly of good portion and tasted quite good. The chowder was a bit watered-down for me, not as thick as I would have liked it. Pasta was nicely al dente, and kudos to them for changing the beef (I don't usually take red meat) to chicken for me :D. They did a pesto pasta for my vegetarian friend, which was excellent! Tiramisu was disappointing though, it tasted more like a nicely chilled chocolate sponge cake than really tiramisu. Coffee was run of the mill for me. Oh, and they don't serve bread :(

    I stil have to say their indoor sitting is still quite dark, because they dont switch on the lights and have a candle in each table instead. Makes it very hard to read the menu unless your sitting back facing the door, where you can try your luck at catching the daylight.

    Service was nicely efficient with the small seating.

      Opened since September 1995, Michelangelo's is the flagship restaurant of Chef Angelo Sanelli's Michelangelo's Restaurant Group. It is strategically located in Holland Village, which is an expatriate enclave, with its sister restaurants Bentfork Cooking School, Original Sin and Sistina Ristorante in close proximity. Zambuca Italian Restaurant and Bar at Pan Pacific Singapore also fall under the same group.

      Having my office strategically located around Holland Village area really spoil us for choice when it comes to lunch. But of course, going to nice restaurant usually occur on special restaurant, that is for a birthday celebration & another colleague's farewell.

      I guess the best picks in an Italian restaurant is pasta and there's acctually a handful of choices to pick from. Set lunches are available as well, as $25 , which came with either a soup of the day or a mushroom with egg kind of appetiser (sorry, didn't note down the exact name of it). I ordered the latter and it was pretty good, with huge chunks of mushrooms and it went perfectly well with the watercres and venegar dressing. However, choice of main course for the set was very limited, with either one type of pasta or another beef cheek dish. Mine was the pasta, serving was not very big, just nice for my small appetite. The set meal was then completed with a chocolate mouse with jelly and a cup of coffee. Somehow, I do find the combination of sweet chocolate mousse with citrous jelly a bit weird.

      But well, considering that a typical main course on the ala carte menu goes in the range of $20 , the set meal is pretty worth it. It'll be even more of a good deal if you have an AMEX card or Citibank card because there's a 1-for-1 promotion for set lunches with AMEX card and for Citibank card, it's a 1-for-1 promotion for selected ala carte main course during lunch hour. But mind you, both card can't be used at the same time.

      Other than the food, service was really good. My glass was constantly topped up with iced water!
